Los Angeles saved 87 million gallons of water during storms
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles saved 87 million gallons of water during last month’s storms by turning off the hose.
The Los Angeles Daily News says officials announced Tuesday that conservation measures helped reduce water use during the wet weather in March.
City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell says the water saved could supply 500 families for an entire year.
O’Farrell says the Department of Recreation and Parks had the biggest savings by reconfiguring timers on its irrigation system to avoid watering during the storms.
